Author: Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmadra, 4th Caliph of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
Description: Murder in the name of Allah is a general review, with special emphasis on the subject of freedom of expression in Islam. This book is a reminder that purpose of any religion is the spread of peace, tolerance, and understanding. It urges that meaning of Islam - submission to the will of God - has been steadily corrupted by minority elements in the community. Instead of spreading peace, the religion has been abused by fanatics and made an excuse for violence and the spread of terror, both inside and outside the faith.

A senior Amadiyah member was sentenced to six months imprisonment at the Serang District Court on Monday in relation to the violent mob attack that killed three other members of the minority sect on February 6.

Deden was convicted of inciting violence, obstruction of justice and disobedience after he refused police orders to evacuate when a group of Ahmadis were besieged by an angry mob at a home in Ciekusik, Banten.

He was among 20 Ahmadis who came to protect the home of an Ahmadiyah leader in Cikeusik, following rumors that locals wanted to forcibly disband the sect in the area.

The brutal attack involving about 1,500 hard-liners from surrounding villages left three Ahmadis dead and five, including Deden, seriously injured.

The Serang District Court found Deden guilty of a violent attack on Idris bin Madanim, one of the protestors, but it cleared him from the more serious charge of inciting hatred.

“We have considered the defendant is also a victim in the attack. He sustained injuries, his car was burned down. So we have delivered a sentence lower than what the prosecution is asking for,” said presiding judge Sumartono.

In response Deden told the court, his sentence could set a bad precedence.

“I, a victim, am sentenced because of political pressures.”
